As a Certified Birth & Postpartum Doula I am educated in the areas of pregnancy, labor & birth, infant care, postpartum, advocacy and autonomy.
I continually seek out holistic and evidence based birth work training and workshops such as the full curriculum training of Naoli Vinaver, a Mexican midwife and worldwide treasure, and various workshops, and upcoming certifications for Childbirth Education!
I feel strongly that every birther have their emotional and physical needs met and nourished, regardless of identity, age or appearance and I strive to celebrate, advocate and educate together in a safe and supporting environment.
Before starting my journey into motherhood I worked as a CNA in nursing homes for veterans. I was sure nursing was my path until my first kiddo introduced me to the incredible world of parenting! I knew I wanted to be a doula after I had her, but between piles of birth books, playgroups and two other children later, I kept dreaming. I had learned so much on my own over the years, passion driven, helping friends through their own pregnancies that I knew it was time to officially step into trained certification and I've never looked back!
Balancing birth work with family life and homeschooling gives me so much joy and I love to share it with the families I help.
My children are now "big kids" and teens and they still fuel my passion for what I do everyday, because it wasn't so long ago I was holding them in my belly and rocking them through the nights.
I truly believe that "It takes a village" to thrive in this life
and I hope to become a supportive member of yours.
